The other day I was checking my email during lunch break at work when I noticed a strange looking email in my inbox. So I clicked it open and got the shock of my life!
It appears that I have won another blogging related reward, this time from SK Thambee. Thambee is an Indian name but SK is actually a Chinese guy with a somewhat vulgar mouth just like me, don’t ask me how he got that nickname. Beats the fuck out of me too.
My senior manager always told us that we have to be outspoken at all times. Heeding his advice worked! For being 口水多过茶 hao shui duo gor cha (talkative) and spamming comments on every of Thambee’s blog posts, I’m going to win myself a handmade personalized music CD! How cool is that?
Anyway, a more pressing question is: what the fuck is with this email?? It comes with a link to a web-form, complete with a token password and some disclaimers. This is too professional and awesome and intimidating at the same time. It is a million miles more impressive when compared to a typical dingy little blog run by a fatty, like RealGunners Blog for example. When I did a giveaway some time ago, all I did was did a bunch of pathetic and unprofessional back and forth emails with the winners. I feel almost embarrassed thinking about it now…
And it gets even better. When I clicked on the link to complete the process to redeem my award, I had to go through a login page and key in the token password to activate the page specifically for me. Then there were a bunch of boxes for me to fill in with details. There were buttons for me to press to either Save or Submit.
And when I finally Submitted my details, I can even track the progress of my award, like how you track your PosLayu or FeLex or UBS shipment.
These are all the works of the scripting genius that is this SK Thambee. I’m telling you, he can do a lot of scripting and web page related development stuff much much much much better than a lot of those freelance web developers who will charge you over US$ 5000 for something that isn’t even half as impressive.
Too bad I don’t think Thambee is actively looking for side income (are you??), otherwise with his impressive works, he should be able to make a lot of money even just by freelancing, as there’s a lot of demand for high quality web development. But who knows? With 2016 shaping up to be a gloomy year for Malaysians financially, maybe he would consider joining the #2kerja fraternity…
Anyway, I can’t wait for my CD to arrive… 😀
